India Day 4

Another good day in Pune.  Vishakha continues to open up to us.  She is starting to talk a lot more, and trying to imitate our English. She is such a sweet, affectionate child.  Today she was all about the hugs and cuddling.  She even surprised us with a few kisses.  This child melts my heart.  Even though she is going through such a traumatic experience, she manages to be so full of joy.

Phillip was feeling better today, and he found us a place to play glow-in-the-dark miniature golf. Vishakha had a blast.  It's a shame it was too dark for good pictures.  After that, we walked to a nearby mall. 

 The rest of the afternoon was spent in our room, because we were just too tired for much else.  We went out for dinner, and Vishakha ate her meal, which is a first.  She also enjoyed a chocolate milkshake.  She took one little sip, then as the taste sunk in, her eyes got wide and a big grin came across her face.  I asked her if she liked it, and I got an extremely exaggerated head bob (meaning - Yes!).

We were able to skype with my mom and our kids at home tonight, and Vishakha even said "hello" to each of her siblings.  She smiled so big as each of them called her name.  She's been watching lots of videos of them on my computer.  She laughs so hard at some of them.  I can't wait to have all my children together.
